  • About Into the Healing

    Shanna believes healing is a journey toward a peaceful mind. One must witness the beauty of the unfolding moment in the face of life's inevitable stresses. Although the path of healing may result in recovery from injury, illness, or disease, the ultimate attainment is being at ease with whatever is occurring.


    Dealing with multiple traumas that were causing great strife, Shanna sought out professional support. She received a series of CranioSacral Therapy sessions that helped her spring back from long held physical and emotional stresses. Receiving this work inspired her to learn Advanced CranioSacral Therapy and other healing modalities which continue to be a source of inspiration.


    At the core of Shanna's offerings is her gift of helping clients to free themselves of mental, emotional, and physical restrictions. With over 20 years of professional experience, she offers an intuitive blend of mostly light but sometimes deeper pressure techniques which addresses the root causes of suffering and supports the body's ability to heal itself.

  • Advanced CranioSacral Therapy

    myofascial & somatoemotional release

    CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on treatment that helps to revitalize the fluid system of the body which calms the nervous system and helps the body heal from stress, injury and disease. Developed in the 1970's by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger, this comprehensive technique helps to activate the body's innate healing mechanism which brings the body into balance and alignment. CST incorporates Myofascial and SomatoEmotional Release techniques.

    Energy Medicine

    reiki & polarity therapy

    Energy medicine (aka energy healing) helps to activate life force energy which encourages the body to return to balance and health. Reiki is an ancient energy healing technique founded by a Japanese man named Mikao Usui in 1922. It has been known to reduce stress and promote healing on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Polarity Therapy is the art and science of stimulating and balancing the flow of life energy.

    Intuitive Healing Classes & Workshops

    Ignite self-healing, then help others

    In response to fulfilling her clients' requests to understand and apply what they receive during their sessions, Shanna developed an 'Intuitive Healing' curriculum designed to equip people with tools and techniques to break free from restrictions and to live in a state of surrender.


    Everyone is blessed with the ability to harness and direct life force energy. Shanna's one-on-one and group classes provide you with powerful self-care techniques and tools to support others, on or off-table as well as on or off-body. If you are a beginner or advanced bodyworker, Shanna's curriculum may boost your confidence and broaden the spectrum of your offerings. Deeply grateful to draw upon CranioSacral Therapy and her own version of Energy Medicine, she finds great pleasure in offering such teachings.

  • Testimonials

    "Without sharing one detail about my history, Shanna intuitively knew the areas of my body that needed balancing, releasing, and grounding. I highly recommend Shanna as a body worker who can address all levels of healing with reverence and precision." -Jennifer Lynn, Founder of Wisdom Flow Yoga

  • FAQ

    Healing is a Process. Enjoy it.

    What does a typical session look like?

    • Consultation Time-The first part of the session includes an intake and consultation which acknowledges your current state of being and helps Shanna to assess how she can best support your wellbeing
    • Table Time-As you comfortably recline face-up (typically for entire session) on a massage table, Shanna continues the session with a focused intention to support your highest good. A CranioSacral Stillpoint Technique is offered to calm and balance the nervous system and jumpstart your self-healing mechanism. Tuning in to your body wisdom, she intuitively assesses your priority needs and implements subtle yet sometimes deep touch to release restrictions and improve wellbeing.
    • Integration & Conclusion-As your body integrates positive changes, Shanna gently guides you to return to the present setting of the room. She includes time to share about the experience, to answer questions, and to allow you to ground and hydrate before you leave.

    What are potential results from this therapy?

    Although Shanna does not guarantee any results from her therapy and is not a substitute for proper medical attention, she has received feedback from her clients reporting their experience of positive changes including:

    • Pain Relief & Ease of Symptoms
    • Clearance of Brain Fog
    • Healthy Immune Function
    • Balancing of Hormones
    • Deep Relaxation & Peace of Mind
    • Recovery from illness, injury, trauma
    • Spinal Alignment & Increased Mobility
    • Confidence & Sense of Purpose
    • Heightened Intuition
    • Feeling lighter & more Joyous

    Is it normal to feel sensations such as pain, illness, soreness, fatigue, & heightened emotions during & after a session?

    • Your body's healing mechanism becomes activated during a session and the therapuetic process continues after a session. Although there may be initial discomfort as the body releases physical and emotional tensions, your body intuitively moves toward health and natural alignment
    • Our body stores the energetic impact of past traumas and injuries into its cell structures and develops compensation patterns to support itself. When negative imprints are released, you may experience pain or discomfort in other regions of the body, perhaps where pain never existed. This might happen because connective tissue in one region inserts an attachment to structures in different areas. Therefore, when negative traumatic imprints are released from the neck, the fascia of the sacrum may shift, and vice versa.
    • As tissues unwind and release, trapped emotions may surface and a  SomatoEmotional Release process begins.
    • If relief doesn't occur within 3 or 4 days, or if pain feels unbearable, please call for a follow up session or referral

    How can I make the most out of a session?

    • Ask for what you need ie...blanket, pillows, tissue, less or more pressure, touch or no touch in a specific area, bathroom break etc.
    • Feel free to ask questions and express what feels natural. You may wish to share memories, images, thoughts, and epiphanies. You may desire to move your body and express yourself through sound. You may experience heightened awareness or enter a meditative and dream-like state. Perhaps being silent for the session is your best medicine
    • Twitching, gurgling, burping, sneezing, coughing etc are all signs energy is moving
    • Allow yourself to observe pleasant and unpleasant body sensations from a neutral perspective
    • Trust in your healing process
    • Avoid scheduling work or other appointments after a session. You may wish to walk and unwind before driving. You may want to go home and sleep.

    How many treatments will I need?

    • Every individual is unique and responds to Shanna's sessions differently. Although you may experience a positive shift from one session, Shanna recommends her wellness programs to achieve sustained results. 
    • The effects of Shanna's sessions tend to be cumulative, meaning one ​treatment builds upon the next. It takes time for the body to integrate healthier ways of being. 
    • After receiving a foundational or comprehensive series, monthly or bimonthly maintenance may serve your wellbeing

    How can I best prepare for the session?

    • Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended. Since, with your permission, Shanna may use techniques that require her to place a hand under your sacrum, she asks that you refrain from wearing a skirt or garments with buttons or metals.
    • Please refrain from wearing perfume or cologne as Shanna is allergic
    • Inform Shanna of allergies or special needs at time of booking
    • Refrain from being under the influence of intoxicating substances
    • Drink plenty of electrolyte- enhanced water to flush out extra waste and lessen side-effects of detoxification
    • Eat at least 1-2 hours before a session so you are neither hungry nor too full
    • Consider results you aim to achieve. Clarify an intention you wish for Shanna to help you support
